If a superhero came with a candy cane, would you trust him? If Spiderman had breasts, would you still comic-book fantasize about him/her? Lister’s pieces make you smile. On first glance, you are easily sucked into his cheeky sense of humour. On careful inspection, you start to pick apart the cultural references. The Brisbane born and New York based artist conjured up this entire exhibition, a mix of paintings and sculptures, to shake himself off an idle stage after he’d broken his leg.  We reckon the wheelchair may just be his inspiration. This is pop culture meets art meets super heroes, even temporarily crippled ones with watercolour imaginations.
